    War veterans in Zimbabwe are organising an anti-Mugabe rally, claiming that President Robert Mugabe and his wife Grace have gone too far.

    Pressure is mounting on Zimbabwe's president to step aside.

    War veterans, who played an important role in Robert Mugabe's rise to power in 1980, are organising a demonstration demanding that Zimbabwe's leader step down.

    It seems his closest allies have now turned against Mugabe and his own ZANU-PF Party is calling for him to resign.

    Al Jazeera's Haru Mutasa reports from Harare.
